COVID-19 has faced both our beneficiaries and our supporters with challenges and uncertainty.

Please DONATE to our #NeverMoreNeeded appeal.

Help our communities in East Africa survive.

COVID-19 has shut schools, worsened poverty and increased teenage pregnancies in East Africa. Parents can't work, can't feed their children and can't buy medicine they desperately need.
We need your help to rebuild and reopen our communities.

Our theory of change

Communities want to provide quality

for their children, but

poverty and a lack of resources make

this impossible.

We can provide the support to make

this happen, but only with your help.

COCO provides quality education to children, and small loans and sustainable agriculture training to parents.

By using these methods together, we educate and empower entire communities to become self-sufficient, and bring themselves out of poverty. We give them the tools to support themselves, and pass on what they learn.

With your donations, COCO has directly impacted over 20,000 lives in the past year alone - but we've impacted many thousands more indirectly.
We need your help to do this again in 2020.

Chloe: "I am proud to say I have worked for COCO, a charity which I believe has mastered the most incredible approach to work; it inspires people to give instead of forcing them."

Jade: "Everyone in COCO’s team both here in the UK and overseas is really friendly, and it’s lovely to work alongside such dedicated people. Volunteers can make such a large contribution, and it is a really worthwhile experience."

Ian: "I've really enjoyed working at COCO, and have been really proud and happy to have been able to help out with some of COCO's projects. I'm still quite chuffed that I was able to be so involved."
